FRIENDS Backpack Drive
Each year FRIENDS provide backpacks and school supplies to children served by Child Advocates of Fort Bend. This year schools will be back in mid-August. We are asking our members to purchase school supplies for one or more children. Backpacks are purchased in bulk using FRIENDS members’ $40 annual membership dues.
There are 2 ways to help fill a backpack:
- SHOP – Contact Brigit Engleman to receive a child’s name, grade and a supply list for their specific school and classroom and check out the school supply bargains at your favorite store
2. DONATE – and have FRIENDS do the shopping for you!
Send your donation of $75 per child to:
Alexis Jackson, FRIENDS Treasurer
7406 Forest Shadow Dr.
Sugar Land, TX 77479
Have questions or need more information? Contact Brigit at Bengleman@hotmail.com.
Annually in October and in the Spring, Friends Council hosts a morning Friends Coffee and an evening Martini Night at a private home. These are opportunities to welcome new members, share the many contributions made by the council during the year and enjoy a guest speaker, fashion show, decorating ideas or other entertainment.
Join FRIENDS today to make sure that you get your invite to the next event!
